News and opinions, mostly opinions. Oh and sarcasm… LOTS of sarcasm.

Republican Party Has More Warrants Than Wu-Tang Clan

Just when I was beginning to think we should start offshore drilling for testicles because of our governments current shortage of them, the Dems and the Department of Justice took theirs out of storage.  First, yesterday, Senator Ted Stevens (R) – Alaska was indicted on 7 counts for not reporting a quarter-million dollars in home renovations he received from an oil company.  Then today, a House panel voted to hold Karl Rove in contempt of Congress.

Now the Ted Stevens thing is possibly the greatest thing ever, not only, because of the easy jokes about those internet tubes being expensive, but also because this is just the kind of scandal the democrats needed to be able to take a BIG majority in both houses of congress.  Not only are they now, basically guaranteed, to win Mr. Stevens’ current seat, but a scandal like this is going to hurt a lot of other Republicans running for office this fall, much like the Mark Foley scandal did in 2006.
